Pacing Improvements, Bugfixes and More Prompts!

Hey there Wordsmiths!

We've been listening to the feedback that you guys have been giving us on social media and here on Steam, and we're working on an update that addresses some of those notes:

We know that some aspects of the game can really drag in 6-player games, especially during Sub the Title. We're working on pacing improvements across the board, including the ability to skip tutorials and a modified Sub the Title flow that speeds things up dramatically.

Bug Fixes
We're continuing to fix bugs as we find them, including some of the issues that some of you with NVIDIA mobile GPUs have encountered.

More Prompts
Finally, we'll be adding a bunch of new content across all of the games! We don't have a definite number yet, but we'll update when the patch is out.

We're targeting the end of May with this update, so stay tuned.

Thanks for all of your support and feedback!

-Brent & Julian

Use Your Words 1.01 Patch

Hi Steam users!

We've pushed a minor patch that addresses some stability issues, notably instances where the game gets into a situation where it can no longer progress.

We have also enabled the ability to resize the game's window when not in fullscreen mode.

If you encounter any issues with the game please post in the discussion page or message us at

“I’m glad to see some other games coming out that adapt the formula Jackbox pioneered, and Use Your Words looks like it will be a worthy competitor.”

“Hilariously intuitive...a great entry in the party game genre.”
4/5 – WWG

“An ideal party game for grown-ups who want to drink and make tasteless jokes to each other.”

About This Game

For 3-6 local players (and way more spectators)! Use your smartphone as your controller!


Use Your Words ships with 4 unique mini-games:
  • Sub The Title: Watch a short clip from a foreign film, then write your own subtitle! Fans of Mystery Science Theater 3000 will love making the actors onscreen say whatever they want in a variety of monster movies, martial arts movies, and some just plain weird films from the past.
  • Blank-o-Matic: Fill in the blank to complete the sentence! Instead of waiting to have the funniest card in your hand, write an answer that matches your sense of humor! We've hired some of the funniest writers around to set up the jokes perfectly so that even Grandpa can crack off a zinger or two.
  • EXTRA, EXTRA!: Write a hilarious caption or clickbait headline for a ridiculous photo, in a take on the classic "caption this" game!
  • Survey Says: Go with your gut in this rapid-fire game show style "lightning round"!


  • 4 hilarious mini-games with tons of content!
  • Support for all HTML5-enabled devices!
  • "Family Mode" to filter out adult or otherwise controversial prompts!
  • A classy vintage soundtrack with songs by legendary composer Bob Thompson!
  • Hours and hours of playable content with more to come!
  • Up to 1000 spectators will be able to watch and vote for their favorite answers!

Note: This game is played locally, but remote players can play via stream or video conference.
Note: all included content is in English only. Some trailer footage represents earlier phases of development.
